Went before a Bucks game since it is only open before Bradley Center events. Great location prior to a Bucks game. The building is gorgeous! The food was just ok. My kids ordered nachos which were pretty pricey for what we got. I got the fish fry since it was Friday, and it was average. Not sure I would go... More

This restaurant is in the 1800's historic Turner Hall - read about it on the menu if you're not familiar with the Turners. Unfortunately, it's only open when there is something happening at the Bradley Center so you'll need the website before you go. On Friday they have a great fish fry -with french fries or elongated tator tots (they... More

I just want to give TA members a heads up ---- If you are going to an event at Turner Hall, don't expect to eat at their restaurant before. Apparently the restaurant is only open during Major Events at the Bradley Center across the street. This info is on their website, but I thought that TA members would like to... More

Good food and great service among history. Be sure to look at the murals around the restaurant to get a good history of the area.

I was here for a big event and we were served a fish fry buffet. It was outstanding. Can't wait to go back. Thanks for the great food.

We were glad to see that Turner Hall was serving Fish Frys again. Our return there was a happy occasion. We rank Turner's fish equal to the Avenue Grill in Madison as being the best we've had. The breading is tasty, fried properly using excellent fish. Our worst complaint is trying to park on a Friday night with an Admirals... More

We were there for a rehearsal dinner on a Friday night in May. The setting is pretty casual; probably terrific for a large group of friends or families with multiple kids. The food was good, but again, it was a banquet setting, and the service we experienced was fine. What I remember most is that that room we were in... More

Turners serves a pretty good fish fry-- potato pancakes, apple sauce, and marble rye bread, along with cod, walleye, or trout. And they've got a good selection of local beers. The service was friendly, but a little inexperienced-- our waiter didn't seem familiar with the different styles of beer. But we will definitely be back.

Great location. We went here before attending a concert at the Bradley Center. Even for having full tables, the waitstaff was cordial and quick. The menu isn't that extensive but offers some good options. I had the BBQ cheeseburger with bacon. I would've liked the burger to come with lettuce and tomatoes, but it was still good. My date had...
